Roy's Postcards: 1982/03/27


We made a quick trip to the Museum today to see a diamond display, and a dinosaur display of drawings and paintings by Charles R. Knight. Leonard learned to recognize a dodo bird, and really liked the dinosaurs.

Postcard back:

A nocturnal anteater living in East and South Africa, 4 to 5 feet long, 2 feet high at shoulders, weighs 140 pounds. The powerful claws tear open termite hills, the long, sticky, tongue collects the insects, which are its principal food.

Leonard's comments:

I can't tell you how often the ability to recognize a dodo bird has come in handy. You should look up Charles R. Knight; there's a good chance you'll recognize one or more of his paintings.
